I've on a real Bird Song kick lately.
Here are a few that I've been listening to:
A very fine Keith era Bird Song in a very very fine '73 show. Set II is brilliant top to bottom and Phil's on fire.
The longest Bird Song ever and one of the best and an excellent AUD to boot!
A hot Bird Song that goes into a really rocking C.C. Rider. Not generally a huge CC fan but it got rocked out pretty well in the early 80s and this is a prime example.
Excellent Bird Song in this smoking first set. If you've never heard this Sugaree listen to it RIGHT NOW! Best one of the '80s.
A set closing Bird Song from the late 80s. This one is probably my personal favorite right now. Not as jazzy as some earlier versions perhaps not quite as exploratory but the Jerry-Brent interplay and the groove the whole band locks into towards the middle/end get me every time.
A nice acoustic Bird Song to round things out.
